Yelich went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk in Thursday's 7-2 loss to the Dodgers. The 25-year-old outfielder and native Californian went deep in the third inning, his first homer since May 10 against the Cardinals. Yelich has hit safely in six of his last eight games, although his May average remains just .246. He remains a bit behind the pace of last season's offensive numbers but certainly still offers plenty of value across the board fantasy-wise.
Yelich went 2-for-5 with a solo home run and a double during Wednesday's loss to St. Louis. Yelich is quietly turning in another solid fantasy showing. His five-category production makes him a coveted rotisserie asset -- the outfielder has already piled up 26 runs, five home runs, 19 RBI and three stolen bases with a .281/.331/.422 slash line. Expecting an uptick in RBI and a climb in batting average going forward isn't out of the question, either.
Yelich is not in the lineup Saturday against the Mets due to mild tightness in his hamstring, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports. Yelich still participated in warmups, so the issue doesn't appear to be anything overly serious, though more should be known after Saturday's game. Ichiro Suzuki is starting in center field for Yelich.
Yelich is not in the lineup Saturday against the Mets, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports. Yelich will take a seat for just the first time all year Saturday, as Ichiro Suzuki gets the nod in center field. The 25-year-old is off to a modest start at the plate this season, slashing .272/.323/.386 with four homers and three stolen bases through 28 games (114 at-bats).
Yelich went 4-for-5 with a double and a run scored in Friday's loss to the Pirates. He now has four multi-hit performances in his last seven games, giving him a .379/.406/.517 slash line over that stretch. After hitting .300 and .298 in the last two seasons, Yelich is right back at it in 2017, hitting .303 (27-for-89) through his first 21 games.
